AU blasts Trump for ‘shithole’ remark on Africa

Donald Trump
U.S. President, Donald Trump

The African Union on Friday blasted President Donald Trump for his profane comments about African countries and other nations, and recalled the U.S.’ history of bringing in slaves from the continent.

Mr. Trump used the words “shithole countries” to describe Haiti, El Salvador and African countries in response to lawmakers who suggested they restore protections for immigrants from there, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

The White House has not disputed the report.

Responding to the remarks, AU spokeswoman, Ebba Kalondo, reminded Trump that many Africans “arrived in the U.S. as slaves,” adding that Trump’s profane statement “flies in the face of all accepted behaviour and practice.”

She described the U.S. as “a global example of how migration gave birth to a nation built on strong values of diversity and opportunity.”

In her statement, Kalonda said the African Union and its partners would continue to address the causes of migration while also fighting against racism and xenophobia.

Meanwhile, South Africa’s governing African National Congress party took to Twitter to chide Trump over his “offensive” choice of words.

Others responded to the derogatory slur with humour. “Good morning from the greatest most beautiful ‘shithole country’ in the world!!!” Leanne Manas, a news anchor for South Africa’s SABC broadcaster, wrote on Twitter.

    If you don’t respect yourself and value your people, nobody will respect you. Most African leaders don’t deserve to be leaders. In fact some are less than human beings. God is so gracious and kind to bequeath us with everything that can make our land next to heaven, but greed, selfishness, nepotism, religious bigotry killed Africa. I don’t understand why African leaders will loot their common wealth and stock them in Europe, US and other developed countries. AU is just not ashamed for attacking Trump. we should take Trump’s message in good faith and challenge ourselves to change our attitude towards our continent.

    • absam777

      Where is your pride as a human being? Do you suddenly loose your pride just because someone look down on you? Stop being a shithole.

    • FreeNigeria

      You’d think this will wake them up, instead they will loot more and stay in Trump Shit Plaza. They are shameless and cursed

      • Joe

        I have problem with your kind of person. What are our contributions to
        the development of the world?. Anytime one thinks of africa, what comes
        to the mind are miseries, disease, poverty, lack, sickness, evil,
        killings, begging, starvation, war etc. When you think of africa, what
        comes to mind is hell. To be a slave is not a problem, but to remain a
        slave is terrible. Most Israelites/Jews were once slaves, but today
        they are helpers of the world in food, medicine, engineering, technology
        , science, security etc.No big deal of someone calling you sh**thole,
        but prove that you are not. The Jewish slave masters are today being fed
        and sustained by their former slaves and that’s how life should be.

        • FreeNigeria

          You have problem with yourself. Those people you mentioned were once slaves, but are now masters because they worked hard and made serious efforts to become masters. You are emboldening the people that made Trump call Africa a SHITHOLE. time for these cursed people to wake up and start making strides to reverse this trend. Your President was sick, he went to London for treatment. How many hospitals has he equipped since he came back so the common man that can’t go to London doesn’t die from the same sickness.

          • Joe

            FreeNigeria, my comment above was not meant to you please. I and you seems to be on same page.

    • Nnamdi Ugwuadu

      You are on point brother. We have degraded ourselves so we deserve whatever name he called Africa as a whole. Imagine a country that produces crude oil yet they prefer to import refined product and live in scarcity. Nigeria is a Shithole indeed.

    • Annabelle

      @Joe, since there’re still logical people like you, I have hope that Africa and especially Nigeria, will get there some day!

  • obiora

    But Mr Trump is right. Afrika is Shithole but the reason is because of Fulani and Hausa Tribes. Although it is White people that brougth them to Afrika. Is Mansa -Musa not Shithole or is Buhari not Shithole?.

    • absam777

      So you agree with the chief shithole, Trump that you are a shithole?

      • Joe

  • FreeNigeria

    Trump comment, modern day slavery in Libya should be a wake up call for African leaders, unfortunately, they only care about one thing “GREED”. So they’ll continue to loot and help Trump to insult Africans even more

  • musa aliyu

    Are they not worse than shitholes? How do you describe nations that have all it take to be great, yet rely on others to develop? How do you explain places wherein money is generated and the money gets carted to build other lands, leaving the generating land pauperised as ever?! Trump is even kind to Africa, for describing it thus.

  • grange

    They should say it to the African Leaders faces more often, when next they rush with huge entourage to visit the west for one of thier summits and come back with a mad number of shopping bags may be then they will sit up and really develop the continent. At least trump is bold enough to say what most westerners really think of Africans

    • Sani Saleh

      You said it all in your last sentence. If it is of any comfort at least you know where you stand when dealing with Trump. The guy is not a hypocrite.

  • GeeWhiz

    Like it or not, Trump’s comments reflect the reality of Africa, failure of our leadership and cowardice of the masses. People in Abuja are living like Kings while the masses live in shitholes in rural areas! People would rather die crossing the Sahara to get to Europe than remain in their shitholes at home. Until the masses decide enough is enough and decide to do something about the so-called “leaders” we will forever remain the “Third World”, also known as “Shitholes”!

    • musa aliyu

      Thanks brother!

    • thisnigeria

      And instead of taking real action, our people will be calling for prayer sessions. The same thing they do in their helpless situations that make them prey to the “men of God”, forgetting that we are enjoined by the Bible to WORK and pray.

    • Lanre

      Thank you. I have also chimed in with this comment that Trump may not be far from right. But more like Shithole leadership. We are here lamenting about the shitheads ruling us. But Trump needs to be careful the way he is managing the U.S too. The country is gradually going the route of Shithole leadership.

      • Annabelle

        You got it!

  • Manor

    I think the statement credited to the POTUS is not far from the truth. How on earth less than 5% of the population is mindlessly and super rich, while the remainder is hopelessly poor-wallowing in abject poverty, more like sub humans. Our leaders must purge themselves of the spirit of greediness, wickedness, unseriousness, kleptocracy and the likes. Otherwise, these derogatory and dehumanizing tags will always be associated with us.

    • Sword of Damocles

      all the Europeans (irish, german, Norwegians) that fled Europe in the 19th century, do you think they were fleeing from a PARADISE? who flees from Utopia? they were being discriminated against as SCUM, in order words they were fleeing SHITHOLES. Self-hate is the weapon of the racists. if a person already HATES who our creator made them, then the RACIST’S job is already done. As I write this riposte the NY hip hop radio station(power 105.1) is playing HAItian music (it sounds like highlife) to RESIST the “stable genius” in the White House. Love thyself bro……

      • Annabelle

        Trump’s mother fled the shithole of Scotland, worked as a domestic servant for years in the US before she married his father. Trump’s first wife and mother of his three children fled the shithole of Czechoslovakia to the US, his present wife Melania, fled the shithole of Slovania, was an illegal immigrant for a while before marrying trump for green card! Invariably, trump’s world is full of shitholes! Not excusing Africa, though!

  • Sword of Damocles

    One of the points that being noted here in the USA, is that the % of Americans who have a 1st degree is 33%, whereas the % of Nigerians who emigrate to the USA who have 1st degrees is 43%, in essence the Nigerians who seek to emigrate to the US have higher education than Americans. Additionally Haitians fought for the US during the Revolutionary war against the UK. Many people from South America have given their lives fighting for the US, they are buried at Arlington Memorial Cemetery in Virginia

    • Tunsj

      Couldn’t agree more. When you talk about blacks in the US, Nigerians here are the most educated.

      • thisnigeria

        Even more educated than the whites. Unfortunately, Nigeria has not been blessed with good governments and that is why everyone is trying to migrate to any where at any cost and thus attracting all sorts of insults. Imagine we have just one country in the whole black world that black people can be proud of. So sad!

        • Tunsj

          Well stated. Our country is blessed but we have the worst leadership.

    • ima

      Sounds like we are better. How many Americans are fighting for space or citizenship in Nigeria? 1st degree is not compulsory for everybody. They understand that, so are far far ahead of us.

      • Start thinking clearly, education is good for everyone even if not 1st degree. It is an empowerment

        • ima

          Like u didn’t think clearly. Did u even read I what I wrote? I said 1st degree is not compulsory, education is and very important. Na wa.

      • Sword of Damocles

        Ima, I thought about how to reply you. I could challenge the question you posed, and “educate” you that many Americans FLED shitholes european countries long ago to re-settle in the US. But i think I am going to challenge you to read your response again, and try to think through your response. Critical thinking is indispensable. Nigeria is counting you and many like you to lift up that Country in the future

        • ima

          They left years ago? Trump is talking about current situations. So u agree Nigeria needs ‘lifting’. So that’s why u left, instead of joining ‘us’ to lift it. My point- those who run or send their families abroad are always to quick to bash the western world whenever the third world is called out. Yet they run away. Most African countries are not doing well at all. How do u solve a problem without outlining the root cause? Oya educate me further.

  • MP-001* [Joint Chief]

    After the sentiments, crying, moaning and pandering, the critical question still remains, is Africa a shit hole or not? A Continent majority of which has the least regard for human life, rights and well being is a shithole.

    It doesn’t mean he hates Africa, truth told is not hate.

  • wazobia decomposition !!!!!!

    wish he specifically addressed african leaders…………….”how many sh!tholes have you created today”………………

  • Julius

    Please guys, don’t tell me that you are all surprised to hear that from him. He started his election by saying that the mexicans are rapists and criminals. By the way , his wife who is a college drop-out is from slovenian and can somebody tell me what’s slovenians, a real shithole South Central europe country’s contribution to the world ? You are what you accept from what others calls you, so the folks rejoicing by what he called us are the REAL SHITHOLES !!

    • Annabelle

      True!!!

  • Uzoma John

    PremiumTimes stop holding back my comment. You are glad to report that Trump called Africa shit hole and now shying away from the backlash we are giving him. Please release my comment you put on hold. Are you afraid of Trump? Sorry, I’m not.

  • Tunsj

    A Shithole President in a Shithole White House. What do you expect from a Bigot, Dotard, Small hand, Psychopath and an unstable Narcissist?

    • Sword of Damocles

      succinctly put, let me add “!”.

    • Annabelle

      But are African leaders outraged by his comments? I doubt. Because, they’ll continue stealing and siphoning their national treasuries to Swiss banks, Us, Europe and offshore accounts and continue business as usual.Pitiful!

      • FreeNigeria

        And steal to stay Trump ShitHead Plaza

        • Annabelle

          Exactly!

      • Tunsj

        Agreed. Some of these corrupt rogues have houses in the US.

  • DAVID DOGO

    Painful truth though. Are African leaders good for anything? They steal their countries blind and stash those loots outside the countries. I’m happy someone is telling us the Truth!

    • thusspokez

      You must be a Nigerian!

  • Annabelle

    What’s the African Union “blasting?” Isn’t that the truth? Until African leaders begin to put their act together, the world will continue to disrespect black people. And by the way, it takes a shithole president to recognize his shithole accomplices around the world!

    • thusspokez

      Until African leaders begin to put their act together

      The usual yada yada yada, What is your contribution to the development of your country or you are one of the lazy type who is want for government to do everything for them. The USA wasn’t developed by the US government but pioneers and ordinary immigrants.

      • Annabelle

        @thusspokez, you’re the kind of moron who refuses, fails, or too retarded to understand/ respect other people’s Freedom of Speech and indeed too uncivilized to make a point without being derogatory! That said, no one of considerable repute would sound their gong the way you do in your writings, so you not worthy of any explanation and I won’t even try! When you wage diabolic wars against everyone who has something to say/do to stop endemic corruption that has devoured the Nigerian fabric, when your predisposition is to derogatorily shoot down other opinions, to promote your primitive, native, naive and bridge-to-nowhere ambitions, then your unmitigated desire is to contaminate the environment with your disaster and must be checked! What’ve you done to develop Nigeria/fight for the cause of Nigerians other than collaborate and silence those who cry for change? If you know anything, you’ll figure the one thing that sustains the US is their strong institutions promoted by their government! Is development only about buildings, roads and infrastructure? Your Nigerian government is malignant and sick from its origin, and cancerously corrupt! And you aren’t just enabling that cancer, but infecting everyone to expand your complacent minion base and stymie progress! People like you are used to kill/assassinate anyone who wants to improve the lot of Nigerians as did to Dele Giwa, Bola Igie, Murtala Mohammed and others! What have you done for Nigerians besides extolling the smelly, corrupt, ignorant status quo? Again, until African leaders begin to put their act together, the world will persistently treat black people, including you, as “shithole!” You’re a disrespectful person and I’ve zero tolerance for any king of bullying! If that’s the only language you understand, I’ll communicate it to you! As I said before, you met the wrong person so bring it on!!!

        • systematic

          Well spoken my bro pls educate him very well

          • thusspokez

            …educate

            You must be a Nigerian!

          • systematic

            yes i am proud to be a nigerian.a peace loved one

        • thusspokez

          …you’re the kind of moron who refuses, fails, or too retarded to understand/ respect other people’s Freedom of Speech

          Not when you are indulging in poppycock! Even móróns detest poppycock, you know.

          Nigerian fabric, when your predisposition is to derogatorily shoot down other opinions

          Now you are accusing me of intimidating you? Chineke!

          What’ve you done to develop Nigeria/fight for the cause of Nigerians other than collaborate and silence those who cry for change?

          Revisit my comment and read it again and this time, make the effort to understand it better.

          Too many of you are using corruption to hide your weaknesses. On another comment, I cited the case of Nigerians who pay thousands of dollars to smugglers, only to end up drowning. . These people had thousands of dollars but the best idea they could come up with was to use the money to pay some smuggler to take them to Europe where they could work as offices and toilets cleaners, and pot washers?

          If you know anything, you’ll figure the one thing that sustains the US is their strong institutions promoted by their government!

          Poppycock again. You lack knowledge of US history: about the early pioneers, slavery, wild West and lawlessness, and the reason Americans still cling to their guns to this day, not to mention the height of the mafia and corrupt legislators, court and governments in the 1920-60s. Current day Nigeria is not even half-way near the level of corruption of the USA then.

          It is often the case that in advancing arguments in support of a case , such arguments, by coincident, may have different interpretations for different people. However, my avid readers would recollect some of my compositions and long held position on corruption.

          But what I wish to convey or repeat here is the need for Nigerians to see themselves as pioneers who can prevail in spite of their government corruption and not get stuck like a broken vinyl record repeating the same complaint. And there you have it in a nutshell

          People like you are used to kill/assassinate anyone who wants to improve the lot of Nigerians as did to Dele Giwa, Bola Igie, Murtala Mohammed

          What are you on about?

          You’re a disrespectful person

          You must be a Nigeria! BTW, you forgot to use the other frequently used Nigerian words like: “insult”, “educate”, etc.

          … and I’ve zero tolerance

          At this point, one is tempted to say: piss off then! But one must resist it!

          • Annabelle

            Again, you’re a disrespectful trash rat and I can see how you wish to drag as many people into your cesspool of stupidity!
            You indeed humor yourself by thinking you or anyone in your septic shoes can intimidate me! If anything, your psychotic “Ph.D” in History has neither taught you that people shouldn’t repeat the absurdity and dreary events of the past which they’re supposed to learn from, nor wallow like pigs in a situation that is anathema to their corporate welfare!
            Who’re you to judge anyone in Nigeria struggling to escape the “shithole” and death trap they’ve been confined to by their government? Who’re you to determine or evaluate other people’s decisions or how they spend their money? Is that an excuse for their government to be irresponsible and gloat in corruption? Yes, corruption! And if you feel offended, you’ve the right to stop reading my comments. If you’re a beneficiary/have been a beneficiary of corruption, you ought to be ashamed! But guess what, trash rat, I will continue to publish them! Last time I checked, the words, “disrespectful,” “insult,” “educate” are English words, not Nigerian! If your understanding is confined to “Nigerian”/your personal, demented interpretation, or you attribute their usage to Nigerians, I can’t help you! If there’re any nationals who welcome your uncouth language, go ahead and communicate with them. But, you will restrict your disrespect and hogwash language to your associates!

          • thusspokez

            You so retarded trash rat, that even if I structured my writings in paragraphs and punctuation marks you’ll still be unable to comprehend good language/civility because you lack those skills! It’s either you have it or you don’t, and in my estimation, it’s a waste of time with you!

          • thusspokez

            if I structured my writings in paragraphs and punctuation marks

            Something taught in primary schools.

            Maybe your writing skills need improvement to enable your readers to understand your comments better.

          • Annabelle

            Trash rat, if you could read, you would see the responses to my comments. The only person who doesn’t and will never understand my comments is you, trash rat!

    “Botswana’s government on Friday summoned the US ambassador to complain about remarks reportedly made by President Donald Trump describing African nations as “shithole countries”

    But what is the reaction of the first-class clueless múmú Buhari government? Nothing! What will it take for the Nigerian government to be offended?

    Shame on the inept Buhari Administration.
    Shame on the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
    Shame on those of you who voted for the benighted Buhari.

    The Nigerian government should send the US Ambassador back home to demonstrate to his boss, the big baby with orange-tan how vexed Nigeria is.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      How can Buhari react when he is busy begging for bullets from the USA. The average policy of this administration towards the west is SLAVISH because when you commit atrocities you need to keep in line else……..

    • Annabelle

      Did you just criticize the Nigerian government? Really? Are you now lazily waiting for handout and action from the same government? Why is your president “first-class clueless mumu?” Why d’you now want your “beloved” government to be offended but you don’t think its appropriate for the same government to be criticized for its behavior towards its citizens, which is the cause of this shame? What have you done about this offensive rhetoric? Why are you sitting lazily waiting for your “mumu” government to do anything about it? Why is it right for you to air your grievance on this issue but others cannot? Remember me? You are two faced and your own words are coming back to bite you!

      • thusspokez

        Did you just criticize the Nigerian government? Really?

        You need to understand context in discussions. The government of a country is in-charge of the country’s foreign policy. Who should I criticise?

        You are two faced and your own words are coming back to bite you!

        If I were you, I would blame my level of comprehension. I suggest that you go back and read all my comments today.

        The tenet of my argument is about (1) people who are blaming corruption for their inability to help themselves. I then (2) call on such people to think what they can do for their country instead of what their country can do for them. Further, I added to my arguments that (3) governments do not necessarily create wealth but facilitates its creation. It is the people who create wealth.

        Now what is it that you cannot understand? And how does this amount to a total ban on criticisms of governments?

        • Annabelle

          Doesn’t it bother you that you the only one who understands your comments? You need an authentic basic class in Communication because, your “acclaimed” knowledge of history isn’t doing you much good!

          • thusspokez

            Doesn’t it bother you that you the only one who understands your comments?

            It is to do with the fact that Nigerian education has deteriorated to the point where it is now unfit for purpose.

            I was to notice that large number of posters on Nigerian websites have poor reading skills, from their response to my comments. I don’t have such problems on US and UK websites.

          • Annabelle

            Hahahaha…….hilarious trash rat! Bad as Nigerian education may be, it’s sure better than anything you’ve produced here so far! Your logical reasoning and level of comprehension are absolutely bankrupt! And if you’ve had a foreign education, we need to know your name, the school and your major because they need to have a copy of your write ups, let’s see if they’ll be proud!

          • thusspokez

            And if you’ve had a foreign education, we need to know your name, the school and your major because they need to have a copy of your write ups, let’s see if they’ll be proud!

            You must be a Nigerian! We don’t collect useless academic qualifications and then flaunt them in this part of the world as you do in Nigeria. For example, we don’t put “Engr.”, “Journalist” etc., before our names. Further, we don’t use the “Dr” title unless we are in academia, research or working in the medical fields.

            Anyone reading your comment could see how intellectually indiscipline you are: poor comprehension skill which then leads to poor and often ‘off-topic’ response. You are all over the place with your response and not able to stay on the topic.

            I doubt if you pause to think — assuming, you are even capable of thinking — before posting your comments. For example, I have lost count of the number of times you had used the word “disrespect”. Dotard Trump disrespected your country, Nigeria with over 167+ million people and you applauded him, yet a piece of shít like you is aggrieved that someone is disrespecting you?

            I am sure that if the dotard had picked on your tribe and insulted it, in reaction, you would be spitting blood and even up in arms. You also object to being disrespected by anyone, and yet you applaud those who disrespect your country. Isn’t there something wrong with your thinking process? Can’t you see what a first-class hypocrite and nincompoop you are?

          • Annabelle

            Trash rat, your College/University must be so ashamed of you! Really? How on earth did you graduate from a foreign school? Was it in Lithuania or Afghanistan? Because, even a High School drop out from a “ghetto” school in the US would do better! You want to proceed with this pit? Lets’s go!

    Trump called us ‘shithole’, someone said Nigerian are the most educated immigrants in US. Almost all the Africans leaders, president and lawmakers, governors were well educated, most of them from Europe and USA countries, yet our lot does not get better. Educated mind that can not be translated into action and the betterment of the people’s lot, can best be described as indigestible education. African students only went to the classroom, memorize, copy and passed examinations. The facts that they were educated does not reflect in their characters. Our political leaders are still living in the Stone Age, that is why the Nigerian government expects the herdsmen to continue operating as it was 500 years ago!

    • thusspokez

      ”Africans leaders, president and lawmakers, governors”

      If Europeans, Asians and the Americans peoples had waited for their governments for handouts and help — as a lot you Nigerians are doing — , their countries would never have developed to attain their current level.

      Stop asking what your country can do for you, instead ask what you can do for your country as ordinary Europeans, Asians and Americans did and continue to do, to propel them to develop their countries.

      All I hear from you lot is government is corrupt, government is not working for you. True, so are many countries across the country. It has not stopped Brazil, Argentina, China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Pakistan, Mexico (Italy in 50-90s) from developing.

          My comments provide a rich sources of logical and rational arguments — Students of logic and philosophy would be impressed. It can however be a difficult read for some Nigerians because of their tendency to respond to every issue with overwhelming emotion.

        Beautiful write up and a good advice to us all. But u still need govt to build strong institutions, protect lives and properties. Businesses n society at large need these to thrive

        • thusspokez

          Of course.

      Who is the someone who said Nigerian are the most educated immigrants in USA ? ? Nonsense every one thinks he is the best nothing but self praise. Definitely Israeli and Iranian immigrants are much more educated than big mouth nigerians from their lagos shitholes

      5000000 years ago brother point of correction very fukin shity people that they need to be knocked out

  • Lanre

    More like Shithole leadership. Obasanjo, Buhari, Jonathan, Abacha, Babangida. Were those not shithole leaders? We all say this everyday. Trump needs to be careful though. He is taking America the same route with his Shithole leadership.

  • ima

    The man denied using those words, why can’t we give him the benefit? However the truth is bitter.

    • Sword of Damocles

      Benefit of what? He denied what Senators Durbin (democrat of IL) & Senator Graham (Republican of SC) have both confirmed? Infact Senator Durbin said that Sen Graham was the only person who in the room confronted him. Fronm your picture you appears to be black, my sister stop supporting people who HATE you for no other reason but how our Creator created us: to be BLACK. Lil Sis, BLACK POWER ! Any one who has read my postings Knows that on just about any Issue, I always refer back to our Cursed ruling elites , who do not have shame or respect for their ancestors, but I draw the line at white RACISTS who want to exclude my kind from having the opportunity to migate to the US, just like their(racists) fore-bearers migrated to The US from SHITHOLES in Europe in the 19th Century. Enlightenment is the salvation of humanity, do not forget this my sister

      • ima

        The Graham himself called Mexico a hell hole years ago. And who are the people who hate me that I am supporting? Like the mother of the H&M boy who wore the green sweater which read ‘ I am a monkey king of the jungle’ said to those who bashed n forced the clothing company to apologise- That is not how I think, channel these energy to something more important. I will always give Trump or any other person benefit. On several occasions the big media houses has retracted, apologised, suspended their staff over false reporting on Trump. Pls google it. I am black, Nigerian, travelled. I see people as individual not as a whole race. A white man offends me, I call it racism. What then do I call it when a black person does same thing to me? The west, white race are the fairest parts/people in the world, that’s why every one wants to have a share of their land. It is also evident in the number of third worlders who want to go there and not elsewhere. Like us and others, they are not perfect either. Oya enlighten me further.

        • Julius

          Trump lie like every 15 minutes. Has he ever apologize ? Maybe as his admirer,you ought to talk to him about his lying and advice him to apologize. Has he apologize to President Obama about all the lies he is telling and told about him. Just the other day, he lied that Obama sold the embassy in London for peanut but, it wasn’t Obama, it was Bush that sold the embassy to move to a more secured location.

    • Tunsj

      Are you serious? For your information, the Dotard with small hands is a pathological liar.

    • Du Covenant

      While I agree the truth is a bitter pill to swallow, I do not accept your position of giving trump any benefit of doubt. He looks a racist, talks like a racist, thinks like a racist, he MUST be a racist!. I do ont know if you have ever experienced racism in your life?. If you have never left the shores of Nigeria then, I won’t blame you but, in the 21st century you don’t have to experience it first hand to believe that racism/evil is life and well on planet earth.!!

      • ima

        If I have ever left the shores of Nigeria? Lol. The truth is not what you think or say it is. How u see Trump or any other person is ur opinion and am entitled to mine. How many times did the mainstream media retract, apoligise or suspend a staff over fake news on Trump? That was why I gave him the benefit. Evil/Racism and other forms of bias exist and has always been, but the way you people drum it seems to me an unnecessary cry for help. I have worked with a lot of expatriates, if a white, Indian, Hispanic etc gives me shit, he gets shit back and when he is nice, he gets niceness in return. And it ends there.

        • john adeoye

          my sister do not waste your precious time with moorooons like these guys they only have heads but very emty we have travlled round the world negroria is a complete shit hole governors and presidents came like kids and destroyed everything great men had fought and died for they even killed fels mother a woman who fought for the independence of negroria piece of shit the land s blessed but the system is filled with filty rags who call themselves leaders

        • Julius

          “How many times did the mainstream media retract, apoligise or suspend a staff over fake news on Trump?”
          @ times…one by CNN and the other by Wapo..If you ask me, I’ll say that’s a pretty good record because they do news 24/7. By the way, Why do Igbos always in love with folks that denigrates Nigeria or African as a whole ? Can it be a case of self hatred ? Do ya;; think that Trump gives a shit about you as a black person ?

          • ima

            My oh my. So u are not informed or up to date on world news. Over a dozen times they retracted.
            I am not IBO at all. Byeeeeeee.

          • Julius

            How many times..Miss genius !.How many times has your hero .You brought it up so tell me how many times. I’m not up to date on world affairs/news you say..so educate me. How many times has your hero Trum apologize for the many lies he tells daily. Has he apologize to Obama and his citizenship or lying that he had his Tower bugged during the election. Don’t run just tell me abeg.

          • Julius

            Sure you are !!!!

  • Trump is the worst American President I have ever heard about. He has the gut to call Africa a shithole? Has he forgotten that his own ancestors came from a German village that could be called a shithole too? He is a complete racist and he is not worth giving him a second term to rule the great country called America. America needs a well cultured and civilised President than Trump.

    • ACTION MAN in ACTION

      You think Trump does know about the everlasting dump site at Ojota and shits (open defecation) at obalende bridges and all over Nigeria and parts of Africa? Old boy, please wake up. You are dirty and you know it. Then someone in Donald Trump calls you dirty and you want to hang yourself, then go ahead. I would suggest you go wash yourself clean to stop the dirty insults that can pass unto your many generations.

      • People like you will sell their father for one penny. That means you have sold your pride for a piece of porridge .When did you last passed Obalende you talk about? Where have you ever travelled to around the World? Every Countries I have ever travelled to have slums and rubbish at slums and people still live there, even in Europe. Even America has slums within their domain. You do not really have the exposure you portray. Which Country around the World have you visited before talking bad about Nigeria? You are a compete novice. You are even ashamed to mention your real name. Can you see yourself?

        • Falode rotimi

          Respect. I love your writeup. The guy is probably one of those that see everything from the white man as good.

      • Julius

        Moron, take a ride thru I-95 from NY to FL and tell me what you see especially getting close to the FL…down South. See, how folks live in GA, AL. TRump . insults everybody and every country except Russia…which is another shithole,gas-station country after Moscow and some urban cities.

    • man

      good comment. they should ignore trump if he said that. simple.

  • man

    trump is right. no racism in what he said. haiti is the worst. how this country is the poorest . i dont know

    • thusspokez

      how this country is the poorest . i dont know

      Exactly! you don’t know, so I suggest that you spend a few hours today on the Internet and read about Haiti history. Trust me, you will be full of respect for the country afterwards.

      Haiti was the first country to fight for its independent, which it accomplished from France in 1804. Subsequently, other colonies all across the world followed the Haiti example. But independence came at a very heavy price. The French, 100% backed by racist US — fearing for its African population seeking independence too — forced Haiti to pay compensation to the France government and French slave owners. The payment was completed in 1947 — that is from 1804 to 1947. And you want to know why Haiti is poor?

      After the first-world war, France did the same to Germany, i.e., like Haiti forced to pay it compensation. This led to the decline of the German economy, e.g., depression, the worst rate of recorded inflation in history, high rate of unemployment and poverty. Germany was on its way to being an Haiti but was rescued by Adolph Hitler.

      Indeed French imposition of reparation on Germany was one of the main reason for the rise of Hitler. And Adolph Hitler made sure that the French paid for humiliating Germany after the first-world war . Unlike Germany, Haiti suffered and continues to suffer to this day because of France and US collusion to make a country with African population pay a heavy price for daring to seek its independence.

          And let us not forget the penalty China was made to pay western countries for stopping importation of opium into their country

          • Julius

            Indeed.. these fools know nothing!!!. Let’s keep educating them.

      • man

        they are wek. and after 1947, are they still paying? i’m dissappointed in you. you make yourself seems like an expert, and you say this?

        After 1947, just like all 3rd world countries, they are still poor with bad rulers and complete shitholes. they eat mud-cakes in haiti. cakes made of sands.

        • thusspokez

          cakes made of sands

          What kind of mórón are you who believes that humans could eat sands and not fall ill or die?

          • man

            go on youtube, you’ll see it. the proofs are there. there were documentaries on this. they even have markets for it. haiti is really an hopeless country, you saw hhow they responded to the quakes, they are even worser than sierra leone. we should blame ourselves for being shitholes for allowing slave trades

      • man

        they are weak. and after 1947, are they still paying? i’m disappointed in you. you make yourself seems like an expert, and you say this?

          You showed in your original comment how very ignorant you are, about Haiti, suddenly you are an expert?

  • john adeoye
